Our Program

Discovering Buddhism: Establishing a Daily Practice with Ven. Palmo (August 26, 2018-October 7, 2018)

By maintaining a daily Dharma practice, we can create the causes for a more peaceful and healthier mind enabling us to be of benefit to others. We’ll learn the tools to help strengthen our most positive qualities while diminishing the ones that lead us to dissatisfaction. We’ll also learn how to build a daily practice and how to skillfully cope in difficult situations. Ven. Palmo will guide us in various meditations throughout the course, teaching us techniques that we can use at home. Each class will allow plenty of time for Q & A with Ven. Palmo.

Our Wonderful Teacher: Ven. Gyalten Palmo grew up in San Francisco and started studying Tibetan Buddhism 18 years ago. She has studied closely under Ribur Rinpoche, His Eminence Choden Rinpoche, Geshe Ngawang Dakpa and Lama Zopa Rinpoche, and completed FPMT’s five-year Basic Program. In 2012, she was ordained by Choden Rinpoche at Sera Jey Monastic University in India. As an FPMT-registered teacher, she has been teaching Discovering Buddhism regularly since 2013 at Tse Chen Ling, our San Francisco center. Ven.
